Ishmael Armarh (born 1986 in Accra, Ghana) is an emerging contemporary artist based in Accra. Even though his art comes naturally, he developed his artistic skills gradually from his primary education, through middle school up to the advanced level at the Ghanatta College of Art and Design. Graphic Design and painting were his areas of interest. The rich cultural heritage of his people can be described as a clear manifestation of his art. His work portrays his innermost feelings and activities within his surroundings. Armarh always loves to work with bright colors and clear brush strokes. He is the 2022 Visiting Fellow at the Noldor Residency.
